What is Workers Compensation/WorkCover?
Workers Compensation – also known as WorkCover, or Workers Comp claims arise when you have suffered an injury at work, which has resulted in loss of wages, the incurring of medical treatment expense or a permanent disability. Perhaps your claim, if lodged, may have been accepted initially and an adverse decision has now been made or the claim may have been initially rejected.
What needs to be proven?
Adelaide Injury Lawyer can assist, advise and protect your legal interests. Fault does not have to be proven, although if there is fault, then further additional compensation benefits called ‘common law damages’ may apply, subject to certain thresholds being met.
It is important to remember that strict time limits apply in relation to lodging a claim or disputing a decision – if you have any doubts or concerns, call us for clarification at your earliest opportunity.
